    Amy Sedaris stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to talk about her new Netflix series and to show off her CPR skills.

    Sedaris, who is the voice of a cat in an animated show “Bojack Horseman,” told Fallon that she is now CPR certified and wanted to demonstrate how it's done. 

    “I have a certificate and everything,” the comedian actress said. “I was teacher’s pet.”

    With dummies set up on stage, Sedaris started to explain what to do if someone is going into cardiac arrest. She ordered a member of The Roots band to call 911 and Fallon to get an automated external defibrillator (AED) kit.

    “I’m the best chance you’ve got to be alive right now,” she said as she knelt on the table to do compressions.

    “How about children? Kids grab something to put in their mouth and they're choking,” Fallon asked.

    That's when the "Broad City” star set up a scenario of eating a chicken dinner, explaining that the “bones, chicken gizzards and feathers” are choking hazards.

    "What you're going to do is really pump it out," Sedaris said as she started compressions and then squeeled as the "gizzard" spilled out of the dummy.

    "Pluck you, chicken," she joked.
